Would you be interested in a foldable Surface Phone if it looked like this concept?



We've seen enough patents, code and rumors to believe that Microsoft could actually be working on its long rumored Surface Phone. This is expected to be a foldable device running on a version of Windows10 dubbed "Andromeda OS." While renders of the device were produced by designer David Breyer last December, images and a video were disseminated today revealing a brand new Surface Phone concept.

Created by Harry Dohyun Kim, this Surface Phone concept would fit into the Surface lineup thanks to the design cues it shares with other devices under that branding. What is so interesting about this concept is that it appears to have been based on some of the latest patents, including the one for a "hinge screen" that gives the illusion of a solid display when the device is fully opened in tablet mode. The hinge screen would also display certain information based on whether the device is opened in "tent mode," or is opened like a book.

Less than a week ago, we passed along some code discovered in the latest Windows 10 SDK. Not only are there references to Andromeda OS, the code shows that the foldiable Surface Pro will be powered by an ARM based processor
